  • Detective Pikachu is out and it takes place in the same universe as the anime! In other words, it's canon! But you're probably wondering how it is that Detective Pikachu is in the same universe as Red, Ash Ketchum and all the others. There are references to Kanto, Johto, Sinnoh, and all other regions throughout the movie. Oh and also, Mewtwo is here. Will there ever be a Pokemon cinematic universe?

  • 20 years later, and Ash still isn't the Pokémon master. What a joke

    I believe misty predicted his fate way back in season 1 “Going to be an long time before you’re a Pokémon master like a million years” which is sad since he can’t get past the age of 10!

    Make a video On what Detective Pikachu did RIGHT, that other video game movies didn’t do.

    Well he they just said why,it might be a different city and time but the story stay the same because mewtwo and mew being the main story to ash real quest to meet every pokemon that he encounters.Is not like dragonball z real life movie that they change the whole anime aspect.Like i was expecting an asian decent long hair to play goku not some random white guy that he discover he got powers and maybe at the begining they could have show baby goku training with master rochi as little cutscence.

    I’m pretty sure the movie universe is more related to the games. As they’re supposedly planning a movie based on Red and Blue.

  • @Conner Travis In Pokemon Adventure MangaRed Captured Mewtwo but after he released himWhen in Pokemon Adventure Fire Red and Green Leaf we see Mewtwo fight alongside Red it was because Yellow (a Manga Exclusive Character) called him for ask him help Red fight Deoxys (which badly injured all Red's Pokemons)

    @Kelly Johana Those are just references and its implied in (U)SM in the ghost trial that the anime is a ingame show. The worlds, lore and even characters are vastly different from each other.

    It’s based on a non-canon 3DS game, even my flexible ass can’t stretch that much

  • Peder Otterson  27 days ago

    What about when Detective Pikachu meets Ash’s Pikachu?

  • Skela Tonne  28 days ago

    Can I ask what semantic definition you're using for canon? because this and the title, don't make sense.. unless they're using it as a misnomer

  • Alex Phillips  29 days ago

    I thought they would reveal the "R" vials had a connection to Team Rocket.

    @Symbol Guy me and my friends said it could stand for rage or rampage

  • Symbol Guy  27 days ago

    They didn’t even explain what it stands for or why they chose it.

    It’s sad that ash will never become a Pokemon master.

  • A.J. DeNofa  29 days ago

    Shiroyasha - I predict Gladion is going to win the Alola league.

  • Adam Watson  29 days ago

    Apparently it’s because they feel that the show would be over if he won the damn tournament, bullshit right lol, he could just carry on to bigger and better stuff!

    I was disappointed with the lack of frying pans being used as drying pans in Detective Pickachu.

  • meifung liew  27 days ago

    & no rice balls that called jelly filled doughnut

  • CinnamonRoll Haru  28 days ago

    Not everyone is intelligent enough to use frying pans as drying pans sadly

  • U Raptor  29 days ago

  • Red and Ask are confirmed to be 2 Completely Differents CharactersAnd we don't known if Ash's Anime there is a Redand if in Red's Story there is an Ash
